North Canterbury Musicals is bringing a ray of sunshine to the stage in May 2022 with our next production, Annie.
After the sell-out success of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last year, the society is committed to treating audiences to another night of entertainment for the whole family. With a large cast of children, and a message of positivity and hope, Annie is guaranteed to be a show not to be missed.
The North Canterbury Musical Society has produced Annie before, in 1987 and 2001, but after the hardships of lockdown, it seemed like the right time to hear its cheerful message once again.
Based on a popular comic strip, Annie is the story of a courageous orphan who believes her parents are still alive and will come to claim her from Hiss Hannigan’s orphanage. When billionaire Oliver Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks him to help her find her parents, but his offer of a huge reward is too tempting for Miss Hannigan and the con artists Rooster and Lily, who hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and collect the reward. Will they be caught? Will there be a happy ending for Annie, Daddy Warbucks and the whole gang, including Sandy the dog.
